Code Geass episodes 1-4: The modern classic serious war drama

Code Geass was a very serious war anime from 2006 about the morally grey area of terrorism. Yes we’re doing this. Code Geass rewatch blogging project is a go. I did name this whole goddamn website after a small moment in the series even though I haven’t seen the episode in question since 2008, and […]

12 Days of Anime: 4 signs CG anime have a future

Ever since that featureless green box pretending to be a helicopter showed up in Golgo 13 back in 1983, CG animation in Japanese anime have been the butt of many jokes, not least from myself. Even all these years and technological advances later, CG animation still suffers from featureless figures, floaty movement, lack of impact, […]

Psycho Pass season 2 episode 5 – Angry Birds

There’s a scene from a later episode of Code Geass R2 (you know a post is going to be gold when it starts with a reference to something from R2) where Lelouch lines up a bunch of unmanned mechs with lances to create a line of lance arches for him to walk under. There was […]

Mahouka is terrible on every level – a final review

I watched all 26 episodes of Mahouka. I’m not entirely sure why. At some point it was a scholarly interest in why this was the latest hottest thing in light novels. It might have been because people said it gets better in the novels later and I wondered at what stage that would be. At another […]

Code Geass: Akito the Exiled episode 2: The greatest mecha battle ever

It’s been over 18 months since the last Akito the Exiled. I gather most people who actually showed up to the first one, even if they were all excited and enjoyed it, are struggling to remember what the hell happened there. That’s the problem with these long-running OVA series. On the one hand if the […]

December Roundup

December was a crazy month. Between 12 days, secret santa reviews, and the final year in review, there’s been barely time to watch the anime before even getting the chance to write about it. I’ve got a Code Geass and Ghost in the Shell OVA sitting on my laptop as I write this. Come to […]

April Roundup

Monthly Roundups are back, bitches! I retired the monthly roundups in June last year because I was unhappy with the format. The short paragraphs meant I was essentially just listing the currently airing anime in order of how much I liked them, which doesn’t provide much in the way of meaningful writing. But I still […]

2012 Anime of the Year Awards and Top 10

This was the thinking pose the various members of The Cart Driver had to adopt while considering their nominations. 2012 was a fairly unremarkable year for anime. Nothing really shook the industry, unless you count terrible light novel adaptations with ridiculous titles as ‘shaking the industry’. It wasn’t a particularly bad year either, which would […]
